Many UK businesses think that Brexit may mean they no longer need to comply, with 26 percent of UK organisations admitting that since Brexit they are less clear on what they need to do to be compliant or think they won't have to comply. Two-thirds (66 percent) of businesses in France and Benelux admit they are concerned about data security now that the UK has begun the process to leave the European Union, which shows the uncertainty and confusion caused by Brexit. Only six percent of UK businesses view GDPR as a number one priority, while 30 percent of businesses in France and 25 percent of businesses in Benelux have made it a priority. One-fifth of UK businesses consider GDPR to be a low priority, which is much higher than in France (eight percent) and Benelux (11 percent).
